TAGSA is a special interest group of STLHE that seeks to raise the profile of TA and graduate student development in Canada and to provide leadership in highlighting initiatives to develop teaching skills and other professional skills in graduate students. In particular, this group intends to build a strong network of like-minded professionals and students who will work together to:
- Expose graduate students, faculty members, administrators and employers to the benefits of developing a wide range of skills in students undertaking a graduate degree;
- Help graduate students identify and practice the skills they will need in order to work effectively as academics, as public or private sector researchers, or as other educational professionals;
- Expose graduate students to the field of educational development.
